Charlie graduated from Oxford University with a degree in Modern Languages, and, after some highly enjoyable and fruitful internships in various London ad agencies, made the permanent plunge into the world of advertising at DDB. For an industry not particularly known for its loyalty, he remained there for an unnaturally long period of time, including the merger with adam&eve, and the subsequent 3 years when it was named Campaign’s Agency of the Year.
Over the years, he had the opportunity to work on high-profile, award-winning campaigns for a wide variety of the agency’s flagship clients, including Volkswagen, The Meat and Livestock Commission, Unilever Ice Cream and Foods, The Financial Times, and Lloyds Bank.
In 2016, Charlie and his Australian wife decided to perform their own Brexit, together with their 3-year-old daughter, and head Down Under for an Australian adventure. He took up a role running Visa at Clemenger BBDO, before moving up in the world to TKT.
Charlie is half Italian, which means that he has great passion for all things related to food and creativity, whilst stopping short of wild gesticulating and stylish clothes. His attempts to immerse himself in Aussie culture include taking up ocean swimming, which he enjoys immensely when he’s not being stung on the face by the local jellyfish.
